From the company page:
Data Realms is an independent games studio with two dozen team members in ten countries across four continents, all committed not only to delivering solid gameplay entertainment, but to the democratization of game development by inviting players to engage in the development process in a meaningful, creativity-inspiring, and indirectly educational way.
Data Realms was founded by Dan Tabar while he was still in high school in Sweden, as a way for him to eventually break into the 'AAA' games industry overseas. Years later, the plan succeeded when an early version of the debut project, Cortex Command, helped him land a programming job at Rainbow Studios/THQ in Phoenix, Arizona. However, it didn't take long for Dan to realize that what he really wanted was not to work on big games, but to bring to market his own design which he had already poured his heart into. Thus, Dan left the THQ position to self-publish Cortex Command under the then still-experimental "early access" model, offering customers to buy a work-in-progress license of the game for a discounted price. This has allowed Data Realms to keep developing the project over a long period of time without external funding or a traditional publisher relationship.
